Music Together Online (Newborn-6 yrs with parent/caregiver)Music Together online is designed to teach the way young children learn - through play. During each online music class, your teacher will lead music activities for the whole family to sing, play and jam along to and show you how to make everyday items like dish towels, pots, and stuffies into musical props. Even though your teacher is on the screen, each class is designed to be an active music-making experience for little ones and their grownups. With Music Together Online, you’ll receive: Two 20-25 minute ‘musical play dates’ (mini classes) each week for 8 weeks A beautifully illustrated songbook of our summer song collection A CD and a download code to use with our award-winning Hello Everybody app An invitation to an online community exclusively for enrolled parents that will provide at-home activities and inspiration to keep music-making going throughout the week. Classes are appropriate for infants, toddlers and preschoolers, but the entire family is welcome (and encouraged) to participate in the musical fun. The first musical play date will be a LIVE Zoom meet at your designated class time. We'll record it and send it out later in the week along with the second class which will always be prerecorded. You can experience both videos as many times as you like because in early childhood learning, repetition is good. Join us for a FREE demo class before the sessions start to learn more about the program to see if Music Together is a good fit for your family. Please register separately for the demo events. Demo classes are free but registration is required. DEMOS are LIVE and Interactive with our instructor, Tibbe.

And don’t forget there is fun in learning to sing. Bring music you are interested in working on. Select your preferred ½ hour lesson time online, or identify time on mail-in registration form.
